Our families deserve free public child care, youth services and programming, and elder services that are culturally affirmative.
Ambria is a proud member of the Chicago Teachers’ Union and knows the conditions in our public schools firsthand. We must increase funding for education and earmark a majority of the money to fully staff schools and improve the buildings. Our families deserve free public child care, youth services and programming, and elder services that are culturally affirmative. We need increased multilingual services to support all of our students, and the city must work collaboratively with residents so that the new school coming to the 11th ward is successful.
Ensure proper staffing for small class sizes
Bilingual and ELL support for our families - tutoring to learn English for all ELL students through high school and language resources for their parents
Demand that CPS change the rule that separates Mandarin and Cantonese for achieving the benchmark for district funding for a language-specific support role
Increase family engagement in our public schools, including funding for language justice
Ward Youth Council for input over ward office decision making
Build more relationships with area schools to connect administrators, teachers, and families to connect them with available resources
Retrofit our public schools, ensure all schools have quality modern HVAC systems and mold/lead/asbestos remediation
Increase after school public events/activities
Increase funding for the summer jobs for youth program with targeted outreach to enroll more employers and youth in the program, steering them towards jobs that will involve youth in improving the local community
Invest in City Colleges and promote programs within City Colleges to CPS families
We can’t do this without you.
